At CEEnter Stage - W&I insurance: the standard solution for M&A transactions in CEE?
This episode delves into the topic of insuring M&A deals, exploring the significance of warranty and indemnity (W&I) insurance in the current challenging political and economic climate.
We are joined by three guests. Marcin Stoń, from Marsh McLennan, is the Head of Transactional Risk Insurance, Private Equity and M&A for CEE & the Eastern Mediterranean. Alexander Rakosi is a partner at the CMS Austria office, but has a CEE focus; he is also the head of private equity. Finally, we welcome Saša Sodja, a partner who cooperates with the CMS Slovenia office. Our guests will discuss the key benefits and disadvantages of W&I insurance, and address common objections and fears from clients. Marcin, Alexander and Saša will also share their insights on the future of W&I insurance, discussing the potential for increased interest and use in the CEE region.
Despite a recent slowdown in M&A activity in Europe and the CEE due to rising interest rates, inflation, the conflict in Ukraine, and so on, the significance of warranty and indemnity insurance is increasingly relevant in today's challenging political and economic climate, as its core purpose is to help protect transactional parties from merger and acquisition (M&A) deal risks.
